    This is from the Athletic Dept.:

    Spring Game Set for Saturday at Memorial Stadium


    Nebraska will hold its annual Red-White Spring Game on Saturday at Memorial Stadium, with kickoff set for 1 p.m. More than 66,000 reserved tickets for Saturday’s game have been sold as of Wednesday morning.

    Tickets remain available at Huskers.com/tickets through Friday using the print-at-home option, and tickets can also be purchased in person at the Nebraska Athletics Ticket Office on Stadium Drive. Fans are strongly encouraged to buy their tickets in advance to avoid long lines on game day at ticket selling locations or will call windows.

    Reserved tickets for the game are $10 each, while youth eighth grade or younger will be admitted free and are encouraged to take part in the Drug Free Pledge at halftime. Youth must still secure a complimentary ticket for the game.

    The following pieces of information should be of assistance for those planning to attend Saturday’s game.

    · The Drug Free Pledge will take place at halftime, but those taking the pledge will do so from the stands rather than on the field. This change began in 2016 and is a safety measure for our younger fans taking the Drug Free Pledge.

    · Fans who do not purchase tickets before Saturday can do so at the following locations on game day—Nebraska Athletics Ticket Office (Stadium Drive Parking Garage), Gate 10 ticket windows (NW corner of stadium) and the East Stadium ticket windows between Gates 21 and 22. Those ticket selling locations will be open at 9 a.m.

    · All selling locations will have cash and credit card sales. Kids’ tickets can be secured at any of the selling locations.

    · Fans may enter any open gate at Memorial Stadium. The following gates will not be available for entrance on Saturday—Gates 1, 6, 8, 17 and 22. Following kickoff, Gates 18, 19, 21 and 23 will also be closed.

    · UNL Parking Services will cashier Lot 9 (14th and Avery Parking Garage) and other campus lots for public parking. The charge will be $5 per vehicle, and University donor and cashiered lots will open at 6 a.m.

    · The 14th and Avery Parking Garage (Lot 9) will serve as the primary cashiered parking option for ADA accessibility.

    · Public parking will be available at Haymarket Park and the Pinnacle Bank Arena festival parking for $5 for those with a spring game ticket. Any fans holding a ticket to the Nebraska softball (3 p.m.) or baseball game (6 p.m.) can show their ticket to that event for free parking in the Haymarket Park parking lots.

    · Fans attending the spring game may use their spring game ticket to secure a free ticket to either the softball or baseball game. Fans must go to the ticket selling location at either Hawks Field or Bowlin Stadium to pick up their free ticket for admittance to the game beginning when doors at each venue open (2 p.m. for softball, 4:30 p.m. for baseball). Please note, the complimentary general admission tickets to both the baseball and softball games will be first-come, first-served while supplies last.

    · STARTRAN will be providing shuttle service from South Pointe Pavilions (27th and Pine Lake) and North Star High School (5801 No. 33rd Street). The buses will park on R Street near the Lied Center. Shuttles begin at 11 a.m. and return trips start at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Cost is $5 per adult each way and $5 round trip for kids.

    · The Husker Nation Pavilion (HNP) will be open from 10 a.m. to kickoff in the normal Pavilion location by the Hawks Championship Center. Inflatables, face painting and other family friendly options will be available in the Pavilion area.

    · 2017 Nebraska football schedule cards can be picked up at the Pavilion and other locations around the stadium.

    · Husker Sports Network will provide live radio coverage of the Red-White game statewide and around the world through Huskers.com and on the TuneIn app. Husker Sports Network coverage begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

    · The game can be seen live on BTN2Go at 1 p.m. It will be televised on a tape-delay basis on BTN at 4 p.m. CT on Saturday, and other times throughout the coming week. Larry Punteney, Damon Benning and Ameer Abdullah comprise the broadcast team.


    · Nebraska will honor more than 80 football student-athletes named to the Brook Berringer Citizenship Team during pregame ceremonies. The team honors outstanding community outreach efforts. The presentation of the Brook Berringer Citizenship Team will happen approximately 20 minutes before kickoff.

    · Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 12:45 p.m. for the national anthem which will include an American Flag covering the entire Memorial Stadium playing field. The anthem is being performed by a combined group from the Pathfinders Chorus of Fremont and the Continentals Chorus of Lincoln.

    Anyone else worried the booth will have more running talent than the backfield?

    If you are talking about ameer maybe. DB is a good guy but he was not even top three on any team he played on at NE. Great guy. great rep for the program. Good not "grate" running back.

    Anyone (including Abdullah) is going to be the number three guy when you have two guys named LP and Ahman Green ahead of you....

    From Benning's bio on Husker.com
    If your opinion is that Benning wasn't all that and a bag of chips is okay with me but in my opinion he wasn't to shabby to be playing second fiddle to the likes of LP and AG. Just sayin'. :D

    Very difficult to compare our stable of backs now to backs a whole generation ago. Plus our backs have not finished their careers yet, so we need to give them time to finish.

    None the less, I'd be willing to venture that LP, AG and for that matter Benning would compete well on this team. ;)

    I'm excited to hear the first half will be timed like a normal game with only the second half with the time continually running. I think that will be an interesting format.
